Default Vista... you make me laugh

Maybe Microsoft was so concerned with security that they forgot about the Back button?

Microsoft decided to move the "Back" button to a more "IE'ish" location. Look on the upper left corner of that window...see the <- arrow? That is your 'back' button.

I have no idea what MS was thinking.

Well I checked it out and there is nothing wrong, it all looked fine.

Maybe it Microsoft's choice or feedbacks for like the style. If they either dont like it then they would changed it before Vista went RTM last year.

This back button style was first introduced long ago with IE 7.

The back button (or back arrow) is there but it's a lousy design because they are mixing two different UI paradigms together, making it confusing for the user. MS should either use the arrows or the labeled buttons, but not a combination of the two.

Ya umm there IS a back button. It's just in a different spot. Once you get used to it there no hassle. But is a little weird at first and I'm not sure why they did that to be honest.
